Access LOW Brokerage For All International Trades

China is the second largest economy in the world. It is also the most populous country with a population of over 1.35 billion people. With its ongoing economic reforms and development, China has overtaken Japan as the world's second-largest economy since 2010 and passed the U.S. as the world’s largest trading nation in goods since 2012.

As the leading exporter and second-leading importer in the world, China is becoming the most important trade partner for many countries around the world and begins to play an important and influential role in the global economy.

Over the past few decades, China has been strategically investing and building its presence in the different regions across the globe. For example, it has steadily invested in infrastructure projects in Africa, Pakistan and many other countries.

In terms of investment opportunities, Chinese companies remain attractive to international investors wanting to tap into the buying power of billions of Chinese consumers. No wonder, we’ve seen the rise of the likes of Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent (BATs), which now rank among the top companies in the world.

Investors looking to tap into the Chinese market can invest either through the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) or the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SZSE).

Investing in the China stock market

While investing directly in Chinese companies may not be as easy as buying and selling shares in your home country, there are different ways you can invest in Chinese companies. For example, Alibaba and Baidu are both listed in the US stock market. Tencent is also listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong.

Here are some of the top companies listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange

  • Sinopec – China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation
  • China South Air – China Southern Airlines
  • CITIC Securities – CITIC Securities Company
  • Shandong Steel – Shandong Iron & Steel Company
  • SAIC Motor – SAIC Motor Corporation

Great customer service

I have received excellent customer service since initially signing up and can recommend the team at Monex highly. My relationship manager has made this a very personalised experience which is unlike any other brokerage firm in the market.



I have to say that every single interaction with this platform is just a pleasure - I really appreciated your flexibility and your focus on getting things done in the most customer friendly manner!!!! you are quite a role model for the financial services industry!! 


I have experience of 3 other platforms. One was good, one mediocre, and one terrible! This platform is far and away the easiest, simplest to understand, and the very best for efficiency and service: superb.
